in thread How many man-hours would you estimate you have invested in learning Perl?

Honestly this thread is waaaaayy too hilarious.

The "joke" rests on the general theory that there are, as someone put it "shrill, humourless, agenda-driven flakes" out there who are so steeped in their own culture of victimhood that they cannot let any perceived slight pass without making a federal case out of it.

This thread goes a long way to confirming the well-founded assumption of that joke. Geez - they have a whole lexicon that has to be explained for ordinary people to understand, and their own wiki dictionary.

Thank goodness cooler heads have chimed in to counter-balance the whining and not leave the impression that hiring a Perl programmer will mean having your discussions and meetings completely derailed by socio-political zealotry.
